Apart from that, I don't like what libtool does. I think it's a
terrible idea to have a script and a binary with the same name (only
differing by the .exe suffix) in the same directory. This behaviour
breaks the CYGWIN=transparent_exe option and there's no reliable way
Is there any chance that this could be changed in libtool?
After two months and a dozen revisions of various patches, CVS libtool
-- what will become libtool 2.0 sometime during the next ice age -- no
longer stores both a libtool shell wrapper and a libtool binary wrapper
in the same directory.
So now transparent_exe and libtool should no longer act like oil and water.
